To sum up, both of the cameras provide the same sensor dimensions but not the same megapixels. You can anticipate the Nikon D1X to provide you with extra detail because of its extra 1MP. Greater resolution can also help you crop photos more aggressively. The older D1X will be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor tech.
